A couple of nights ago I was reading Gilbert Gribi’s excellent website. Gilbert is a Swiss modeller and his work is spectacular. It helps that much of what he choses to model are things that just tug at my modelling heart strings like nothing else.
This picture is from Gilbert’s website.
It really is that small. On Gilbert’s layout Les Mages he was only using short Decauville steam engines and my layout will feature similar power so the table length should work out perfectly.
So far I have the deck structure built. I have built a core using 0.040″ styrene. The actual girders on the side though I will make using cardstock and brass. I like the styrene for the core, but think that detailing using cardstock and some wire will be more my speed. Plus it’s what I have on hand.
